BER fire protection tests under way: first hot gas smoke tests a success04.12.2012
Horst Amann, COO of Berlin Brandenburg Airport: "Today's tests are the first step in the right direction. This shows that smoke can be extracted mechanically in the scenario tested."
A detailed evaluation of the tests will take place in the coming weeks. A total of 30 trial runs are expected to be carried out by the end of February, in order to prove that the smoke extraction system is fully functioning.
